1. As a student at UT, you should always join at least one club. This way you can get to know at least a small amount of people. If you're in a tight knit club then you'll end up going places, like parties, together. 2. Don't be afraid to approach people in you classes and introduce yourself. It's always good to have at least one friend in each class. 3. Create study groups with friends and study ahead of time before you go out and party that way you don't fall behind in your school work. 4. Go to your...

    The University of Texas is a huge school full of overwhelming opportunities for any area of interest. While there is a lot of student diversity here, the school over advertises this aspect of the student population. In order to get involved, you really have to get out of your comfort zone at least once to meet friends or make progress in any area simply because the campus bursts at the seams with opportunities and won't notice if you choose not to take advantage of them.

    The University of Texas at Austin is a diverse collection of students and faculty. Highly focused on research, it is a great place to explore academia to a higher degree and get started in research even as a freshman. UT is big enough that there is a niche for everyone.

    UT is full of very passionate professors that love what they teach, which makes classes very interesting and fun. The location is great, traffic gets annoying but if you use the shuttles you don't have to worry much. There's a lot of help offered around campus with anything students may need like tutoring, Counseling Centers, and several libraries around. Fantastic school!

    I've been to this school campus before and honestly it was breathtaking. If you're looking for a place that has a beautiful campus, this is one of your schools to check out. The entire campus tour makes you feel like you're a part of the school as they pretty much convince you that you should go there in the presentation offered. I know that UT is very academically challenging; for automatic admission in Texas it requires the top 7% of schools.
